In a decision dated 6 January 2010 and published on 3 February 2010, the Swiss Federal Tribunal rejected a petition to set aside an award by a panel of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) as incompatible with public policy. The Federal Tribunal considered the petition an appeal on questions of law disguised as an ordre public challenge; moreover, the CAS had in fact properly applied the law.
